I had a nurse tell that the Dr had an emergency surgery and just got back and would see me soon. I completely understand that things happen that may delay the doctor and I respect that. It would have been nice if someone would have communicated with me and let me know what the delay was and acknowledge me versus leaving me sit there without knowing what was going on. My doctor was wonderful, thoughtful and caring.
Everyone was pleasant and professional. My physician, Dr Swigert, was personalble and actively listened to my concerns and experience. She acknowledged and validated what I was experiencing. I felt confident in her knowledge of HRShow moreT for me and what my body needs. However, I felt a bit rushed with the intake paperwork. I never finished it and there was GYN and family history I didn't complete which feels important. I do plan to follow up with Dr Swigert in 6 weeks. Thank you for a pleasant experience!
